THE CHALLENGE

One of the biggest challenges faced during this project was finding discreet locations for the CCTV cameras without compromising the building’s aesthetics. 

Opem Security tackled this by carefully planning the placement and mounts for the cameras, ensuring they were both effective And unobtrusive.

SOLUTION IMPLEMENTAION 

Opem Security deployed a full range of security solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of Douglas House. Key elements of the implementation included:

  1. CCTV Installation: High-definition CCTV cameras were installed at strategic locations to ensure maximum coverage while remaining unobtrusive. Special attention was given to finding discreet locations and mounts for the cameras to avoid compromising the visual appeal of the property’s entrance and exit points.

  2. Wireless Salto Door Handles and Mobile Keyless Entry: These keyless entry systems seamlessly integrate with the building’s existing infrastructure without detracting from its aesthetic appeal. The mobile keyless entry for flexible office environments allows tenants to access their workspaces using their smartphones, enhancing user experience and security.

  3. Access Control Systems and Magnetic Locks:  These systems ensure that only authorised personnel can access specific areas, enhancing overall security.
